Why Okebena v.s. Round? Or Why Round v.s. Okabena? They are the same type of lake, pressure? water clearity ? Number of fish? What?

Round Lake traditionally is a better opening day lake than Okabena is for whatever reason who knows. It's not because of pressure because without a doubt there will be a lot more boats on Round than Okabena guaranteed. Right now the DNR nets had shown Round with a lot more fish per net lift than Okabena even though Okabena still had good numbers and probably a better size average also. Kind of like saying why is Sarah traditonally better than Shetek? It just is.

I'll either be trolling for snot rockets on Lime or jigging for eyes on Sarah.

Do you want the truth? Anything you do on Sarah will get you a nice marble eye! Casting, jiging, trolling, drifting, slip bobbering, but I guarantee you that a Barbie pole, and a Lighting MacQueen pole will catch more than my pole! wink.gif

I'm wondering and pondering between going to Lac Qui Parle or Shetek... Any suggestions on what may be the better choice this year for opener?

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
